I'm curious, do you every actually help out the undergeared in your guild get the better gear, or do you just tell them "do randoms"? Because in my view, that's a crap guild that does that. You should run them together, to learn how to work as a team, and make the queue fast for what are probably DPS. Plus, if you are a good guild, they won't have to fight the ninjas on the gear they need, the half hour waits, the elitist jerks (who would just post useless recounts, without pointing out what they could be doing wrong, you know, helping). Too much attitude now and days is "Go to youtube/elitist jerks/etc" instead of actually learning in game. (I've read and done those, but learn much quicker and better when in game) Too many guilds seem to just want the others to be the level they want, but also don't want to put in the work to make others in the guild up to snuff. Really, it just makes them as bad as the "i'm important" guy.

While I do agree with some of your views, keep in mind there is a difference between helping a guild member and doing the work for them. The player is ultimately responsible for their own preparation and by joining a Raiding Guild you announce that you are prepared or at least making personal strives towards that goal. This doesn't mean you've had 2+ years of raiding experience under your belt. It means your max level with appropriate gear ,gems, enchants, etc and that you have studied the fight well enough to have a general idea of what you should be doing. This usually means going off to "youtube/elitist jerks/etc" before stepping foot in the raid. Yes, some people learn better by jumping in and trying something. Unfortunately most people who claim that simply don't want to take 15 minutes to study. That 15 minutes translates to more raid time and gives each player a bit of knowledge that prevents yet another raid wipe.My team took the time to study and we one-shot Magmaw and ODS on our first day as a raid team. Each new boss took us 1-3 attempts at our first try. How many times did your team wipe before your first kill?
